    I think the high-speed traders made a bundle today and that this behavior only adds to the volatility of the market. I agree with Bernie Sanders that we need to reinstate the transaction tax.

    Stocks just seem like another way of gambling. Not to stereotype but seems most of the LGBT community has little interest in gambling but there are exceptions.

    The freemasons of Corporate America playing games, market manipulation, re-purchase shares for extreme bargain basement prices icon_rolleyes.gif


    Share repurchase
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Share_repurchase


    Share repurchase (or stock buyback) is the re-acquisition by a company of its own stock.[1] It represents a more flexible way (relative to dividends) of returning money to shareholders.[2]

    In most countries, a corporation can repurchase its own stock by distributing cash to existing shareholders in exchange for a fraction of the company's outstanding equity; that is, cash is exchanged for a reduction in the number of shares outstanding. The company either retires the repurchased shares or keeps them as treasury stock, available for re-issuance.

    Under US corporate law there are five primary methods of stock repurchase: open market, private negotiations, repurchase 'put' rights and two variants of self-tender repurchase: a fixed price tender offer and a Dutch auction. More than 95% of the buyback programs worldwide are through an open-market method,[2] whereby the company announces the buyback program, and then repurchases shares in the open market (stock exchange). In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, there was a sharp rise in the volume of share repurchases in the US: US$5 billion in 1980 rose to US$349 billion in 2005. Large share repurchases started later in Europe than in the US, but are nowadays a common practice around the world.[3]

    It is relatively easy for insiders to capture insider-trading like gains through the use of "open market repurchases". Such transactions are legal and generally encouraged by regulators through safe-harbours against insider trading liability.[4][5]

    U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rule 10b-18 sets requirements for stock repurchase in the United States

    Cramer Remix: Waiting to buy? My message for you


    Cramer recommended for those with cash on the sidelines for retirement, that it is a good idea to start investing that capital into the stock market. Do not invest all at once, though.

    Since obama takes credit for the rise, he should share blame for the fall and address the nation:


    A great president would take charge, take action and address the nation like this:

    Who has any money to buy anything???

    We stopped the Russians from spending and they are in a recession.

    Europe is a joke with high taxation that keeps the boys choking the chicken vs. going to work!

    Greece is a disgrace.

    Trickle down recessions hit China finally. They're suffering, because we suffered. It just took awhile to hit them....one theory.

    The middle east is hit from lagging oil sales.

    All of latin America is POOR and will get much poorer!

    Germans are smart because they save every cent!

    Americans (US), are taxed to death and can hardly pay down the credit cards. Jobs pay with only less than 30 hours a week to avoid Obama Care.....lol

    Mexico, Smart as Trump says....send the poor to the USA, while the corrupt spend on lavish holidays and homes....current Mexician President......

    Canada, Oil gone sour.

    Lets see....did I miss any???


    The worlds top 1%......will never suffer!!

    Jesus Christ. Don't remind me. I saw my Fidelity 401k statement this morning and I thought I would vomit. I swear to Christ...this isn't investment. This is like the fucking blackjack table in Vegas and I've had one too many Johnny Walker Black.
